did not spot tornados

Traveled to the CAO via Etobicoke. Somehow avoided the tornados.

As I traveled west, I met a storm front. At Jane St, a wall of water came toward me. People crammed in the bus shelter. Mailboxes shaking. Like videos you see of hurricanes!

Briefly visited Will. We chatted on the front porch. At one point lightning struck very nearby [ed: neighbours house behind us]. Incredible.

Notice hydro service vehicles when I got into the Grey county area. Some west down Side Road 21.

Learned they had "some wind" at the observatory. Damaged a window in the Cygnus room. Then we learned just how close the tornado had come...


The wikipedia article on the tornado outbreak on this day was pretty chilling.
